Artist Statement

This artwork is the second artwork in which I have been inspired by diamond shapes. This is an acrylic painting on Arches 300 lb watercolor paper. I'm interested in juxtapositions of color, and how colors either come together, or move away from each other. I'm also interested in figure/ground interplay and in surface and texture exploration. I use geometric shapes so that there are no distractions in the way I explore paint. I like to call this style "Chromatic Geometry". In this painting, I have also experimented with the glazing technique to paint the nine diamonds over the painterly deep blue-green background. The artwork is painted on Arches watercolor paper (300 lb mould-made, 100 % cotton). It is incredibly sturdy and there is nothing else like it in the world! As an amazing fact, the Arches paper company was established in France in 1492! Notice the beautiful deckled edge of this paper. The artwork is signed on the bottom right hand corner.
